Looks like we’ll be getting more of Cookie’s backstory on Empire next season: Entertainment Weekly reports that Vivica A. Fox has joined the ever-growing cast of season two as Cookie’s sister. She’ll be the third Holloway sibling we meet on Empire: The show previously introduced Cookie’s younger sister/accomplice Carol (Tasha Smith) on her trips back to Philly in season one. Fox won’t make her Empire debut until episode eight, but when she does, the show’s executive producer Ilene Chaiken promises she’ll be just as “troublesome” as you’d expect. We’re hoping she might also be who Cookie gets her bad-bitch style inspiration from. Could this be a test run for the Cookie spinoff she deserves? Maybe!
